Jesus take the wheel, Jenner graces Vanity Fair in DRAG!


Jenner was photographed in drag by famed photog (and practicing lesbian) Annie Liebovitz for the cover of the June 9 issue.

Vanity Fair should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting mental illness for profit and financial gain. Wearing a wig, lingerie, and tucking your male parts does not make a man a woman.

As promised, Bruce Jenner has made her first appearance as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz. In the cover shot, Jenner introduces herself: “Call me Caitlyn.”

In the accompanying story in the magazine’s July issue, Jenner talks to Buzz Bissinger, writer of the acclaimed Friday Night Lights, about why she decided to transition, noting the immense regret she would have felt had she lived her entire life without making a change. “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.?’”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Finally Cover Vogue


Kim Kartrashian was dying to get her non-relevant ass on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour was adamant that the socialite and reality television whore would NEVER grace the cover of Vogue magazine. But Kim’s baby daddy Kanye West and Anna are good friends, so apparently Kanye paid Ann off or wore Ann down until she finally gave in and put both Kim and Kanye on the cover of the April issue of Vogue.

While the soon-to-be-married couple appeared deeply in love, the Internet is not deeply in love with their appearance on the cover of the iconic magazine.

The backlash first caught fire Friday when CBS’ “The Crazy Ones” star Sarah Michelle Gellar tweeted: “Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???”

Apparently many readers were just as displeased as Gellar with the choice, as evidenced across social media. The Vogue official Facebook page racked up 747 comments at the time of this posting — the majority of which are critical of the editor’s decision to feature Kardashian and West on the cover.

Kanye sent Ann a thousand roses on Valentine’s day last month, I guess his ass kissing gesture paid off for him in the end.

Niecy Nash Shares Sure Fire Way to Keeping Your Man Happy


Comedian Niecy Nash revealed a secret to keeping your man happy in the latest issue of JET magazine, on stands now.

Nash, who is on her second husband, tied the knot with electrical engineer Jay Tucker on May 28, eight months after their engagement. Together the couple raise Nash’s 3 children from her 13-year marriage to Don Nash, a self-ordained minister.

Nash says the surefire way to keep your man from straying is:

“If you keep his stomach full and his penis empty – you won’t have a problem”

Really? In my opinion, her advice holds no substance, there should be far more emotional and physical stability in a marriage than what she’s stating. I find Niecy’s so-called advice invalid and superficial. 

How about a man not straying because he honors his vows and respect the sanctity of his union. What about a man not straying due to the love, respect and loyalty for his spouse. 

Her view and mentality is not only worldly but unfortunate.

Jill Scott Says: It’s Hard Being a Single Mom


In the new issue of Ebony Magazine Jill Scott says raising a child alone is
nearly impossible…a man child especially.

That I-can-do-it-by-myself mentality is a lie. I’m sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but you cannot do it all by yourself. You need a village: some aunties, grandmoms, friends. I couldn’t do this by myself and would be a fool to think I could.”

And on raising a boy

“It’s challenging being a single mom … No matter what I do, I’ll never be a man. Ever. I can show Jett how to be a thinker, how to enjoy music or how to feel, and to conquer. But I cannot show him how to be a man.”

Is It Okay To Put White Women On The Covers Of Black Magazines?


That’s essentially the question that Jada Pinkett-Smith posed to her Facebook friends recently.

There is a question I want to ask today. I’m asking this question in the spirit  of thinking outside of the box in order to open doors to new possibilities.  These possibilities may be realistic or unrealistic. I also want to make it  clear that there is no finger-pointing here. I pose this question with the hope  that it opens a discussion about how we can build a community for women based  upon us all taking a deeper interest in one another. An interest where skin  color, culture, and social class does not create barriers in sharing the  commonality of being… women.

With love and respect to all parties involved, my question is this…if we ask our  white sisters, who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream  magazines, to consider women of color to grace these covers, should we not offer  the same consideration to white women to grace our covers? Should women extend  their power to other women simply because they are women? To my women of color,  I am clear we must have something of our own, but is it possible to share in the  spirit in which we ask our white sisters to share with us? I don’t know the  answer and would love to hear your thoughts.


What do you all think? Should white women grace the cover of African-American magazines such as, Essence, Ebony and Jet? Sound off and have a great weekend!
